3 nouns. 3 verbs. 3 adjectives. GO!

Hello, dear followers, 

I’m putting together a bit of a short story project for my blog. I’d be much obliged if you could each give me 3 nouns, 3 verbs, and 3 adjectives. I can’t promise that I’ll use everyone’s answers because that might turn into a LOT of writing, but I will do my best.

Please and thank you! 🙂
